This week, I got the September/October issue of The Horn Book magazine. Not only did I get to read fabulous pieces by Jack Gantos and Kwame Alexander, I also discovered lots of new books:
--I discovered a new series that looks promising for 3rd graders--Lola Levine, due out in November.
--I learned that a new book in the Ling and Ting series is coming in November!
--I am interested in reading the new Graphic novel by Ben Hatke, Little Robot.
--And a sequel to Where's Walrus? What could be better. Can't wait to see Where's Walrus? And Penguin? (and from what I can tell, this book already has several starred reviews!)
--I loved My Heart is Laughing so am looking forward to When I am Happiest.
--I loved Ship of Dolls and had no idea that here was a companion book/sequel. Interested in checking out Dolls of Hope.
--Two Mice looks like a great fun story told in two-word phrases. I always like the creativity in books like that!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Horn Book and highly recommend it to everyone who loves children's books. One of the best resources out there for sure! And I'd also subscribe to the blog Read Roger for even more fun. The Horn Book is the best.
